When Brendan Rodgers speaks, people listen and what he said today in his press conference will leave little in any doubt on his feelings of Wednesday past.
The Invincible Gaffer is always full of praise for the Celtic support but when asked about last weeks banners by the GB he was unequivocal in his response.
“The club have worked tirelessly over the years, the first club in Britain to put in a (safe) standing section and 99.9 per cent of the time they along with the rest of the fans give us this incredible support but the political element is not acceptable.
“There are forums, platform for that outside of football. Take that somewhere else. It is not for inside Celtic Park. It is not what the values are, the ethos is and it is certainly not what I’m about as a manager.
“I have huge admiration for the support they give but my honest feelings is that I’m not with it, I am very much aligned with the thinking of the board and the people that run the club, the people that have to pay the fines. That is my answer to it.”
We’re in a peculiar position where a lot of the people who were worshipping the ground the manager walked on are lashing out because he does not share their opinion. Whether you agree with the manager or not, he’s earned the right to have his opinion and have it respected.
We’ve asked our twitter followers if they agree with the boss.
Have your say!
Brendan Rodgers unequivocal about his thoughts on last Wednesdays banner – "Celtic is NOT a political arena" – Do you agree with the gaffer?
